At a Glance: Adobe Photoshop
Adobe Photoshop is the most widely used design program, and most design professionals have it in their toolkit. It was created by two brothers in the late 1980s and then licensed by Adobe for distribution. It’s since gone on to be the go-to program for all kinds of design professionals, with everyone from web designers to graphic designers to logo designers to motion graphics designers to interior designers using the program. It’s even become a verb, “to Photoshop,” which is synonymous with modifying images.
Designers tackle a wide variety of design-related projects with Adobe Photoshop. They use this versatile program to create webpages, marketing collateral, logos, mobile app designs, email marketing templates, display ads, T-shirt designs, and more. Photoshop is also used for photo retouching to correct the color, remove backgrounds, or alter images.
